The Importance of Busses in Mixing Template
This free Reason Mixing Template relies on busses to make the most out of your mixes. Not only does bussing speed up your workflow, it also allows you to save on processing power and add more glue to the mix. This mixing template includes busses for every major instrument group, as well as for the effects.
The busses are color coded so that you can easily distinguish between them. I'd recommend color coding your imported tracks to match the color of the buss that you route them to.

From a Frustrated Producer in a Ragtag Bedroom Studio to Major Placements on TV Earning $1,000s!
My name is Evan, and I've been making music since around 3rd grade. I'm from San Diego, California, but I've lived in Washington, DC for the last 20 years.
While I still have a full-time day job, I have created systems that have allowed me to produce dozens of songs a year in my spare time.
My songs have been on Netflix, TV shows like the 90 Day Fiance, an award-winning indie film, and NPR’s “All Thing Considered.” They've also been streamed millions of times.
In addition to being a music producer, I am passionate about teaching people how they can make professional-sounding music and earn money licensing it, all in their spare time.
Thousands of musicians, like yourself, have trusted me to guide their musical journey. My YouTube videos have been watched nearly a million times. And my story has been in Forbes, Side Hustle Nation, and the Side Hustle School.
